This is an interesting move by both sellers, get a free game and one month of live included. I picked one up on that crazy 399 sale microsoft store had with the code, but I noticed these were plenty in stock when I stopped by walmart. They must be really pushing to get the stock out the door...good for consumers..

Bad for Walmart. They're stuck with so much inventory that no one wants, so they're trying to cut their losses.

If MS drops the kinect and there is a bundle (with a good game) for $350 I'd definitely buy it

I went to walmart and 2 different targets and not one ps4 was on the shelf. They had plenty of xbox ones, fully stocked and it looked like they weren't being bought.

Still overpriced. Needs to be $350

If Sony adds Kinect to PS4 i'd buy one. I know it's unlikely but they could pay MS a licensing fee to allow them to use kinect.

I'd get an Xbox One if it was $300 with Titanfall and a year of Gold.

so xbox ones were on the shelf and you powers of observation allowed you to conclude that they weren't being bought at that point in time. BRILLIANT!!

Why....you sir are a genius! your amazing intellect is wasted here when you could be working with other great minds to advance our civilisation!

The problem with this bundle is that in walmart and best buy everyone pays tax so it comes out to around 480 with tax.

If Amazon and newegg had it then it becomes much more appealing. Drop this bundle down to 400 and it's a great value and a must buy.

Sony needs to focus on the U.S. because thats the main battleground. People on the fence arent going to wait months and months for a ps4.

I remember the days when people would provide a link or the thread would get locked.

This is actually a great deal. $110 in savings.

Assuming this is true, this goes back to what I've been saying since launch last year:

2014 price drop incoming if sales demand it. A lot of pressure rests with EA's Titanfall deal. Perhaps the 2014 pricedrop will be at this year's E3 game trade show which is only a few months away.

This Walmart deal could be Walmart trying to beat other retailers to the punch, or at the very least move some excess stock to make room. When I said it at the time last year, sales weren't known so I caught a lot of flak from angry fanbots. Now, as time moves on, we are starting to see a pattern.

I dont buy into that fanboy crap. XB1 is doing fine, just not as well as the PS4. Of course the bundles will be on sale since the games have been out for a while. Id worry if the standard consoles had price drops.

Haha titanfall come out last week, if it was doing well why the price drop. They are going to be bundling forza and titanfall for 450 a 4 months after launch, that is desperation

at this point, if anyone is even remotely interested in getting the Xbone, they should just wait. Let's see how much MS is willing to go in including things and lowering the price before enough is enough.

there no reason to take it personal. The x1 isnt selling like it should and even m$ knows it, act like a man and face facts.

Couple of things:

1. Ensure you read the survival guide for System Wars. This is the only forum that requires at least a 500 post count before you can create topics.
2. I would recommend including a source anytime you make a claim like this. Oddly enough, not everyone checks the Gamespot home page here.
